Looks like a prize piece of property is under valued for tax purposes. Wonder how that happened?

Think a home-owner could get by with an appraisal that's under by 50%?

All they have to do is propose a hub, waiting room for mass transit, and Sarah Marsh would be all over this like corruption at the assessor's office. There is two worlds, one for the Ron Bumpass's of the world and one for the rest of us. That's how it happened.

Cdawg, all properties are appraised well under market value for taxes purposes but you're still very clever.
